With election day on Oct. 19, Restaurants Canada asked the major parties to respond to questions on five issues that impact you and your restaurant – credit card fees, labour shortage, supply management, payroll taxes, and nutrition and fitness. We’ve posted the responses from the Liberal Party of Canada and Canada’s NDP. No responses have been received to date from the Conservative Party of Canada or the Green Party of Canada.
In addition to their responses, we’ve provided additional commentary based on an analysis of their positions on key restaurant issues.
We will update our Where the Parties Stand on Foodservice Issues document as the parties make platform announcements throughout the campaign. Visit it regularly leading up to the election so you can cast your ballot for the party that will work for you. Make your vote count on Oct. 19!
For a detailed list of ways to make your vote count, see our Federal Election Tool Kit.
